This is the angle at which the arc lags the torch relative to the vertical direction. It increases with speed or power. A surface mark of about 5 degrees is the optimum setting.
When the main plasma arc has been established the voltage between the torch and material is measured. This is used to compare with an operator set reference voltage and the system ensures that the correct torch stand-off is maintained during the entire cut. The arc-voltage is directly proportional to arc-length.
An ArcWriter is a dual gas, variable output power, plasma marking, scoring and punching system designed to leave temporary or permanent identification marks on metal surfaces. This is very often a separate power supply and plasma torch to the main cutting plasma torch. However, increasingly these are becoming integrated within the main plasma torch, especially where Hydefinition cutting is involved, allowing the customer to cut or mark with the same cutting torch.
This is the amount of movement the machine can make without moving the motor. Provision is made on all Esprit machines to reduce this to a minimum by the use of very low or virtually zero backlash gearboxes.
This is the angle the cut face is out of square to the top surface of the material being cut. When plasma cutting, this angle is dependent on matching the speed, power (amps) and the distance between the torch and the material being cut.
This is where a previously cut path is used as part of the cut for another profile.
This process generally uses a single gas (usually air or nitrogen) that both cools and produces the plasma. Most of these systems are rated at under 100 amps, for cutting materials 5/8
